My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce always carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

Hi Everyone

Happy Wednesday!

Rather late posting today as I made the mistake of starting the day by doing wedding printing .. .. then the emails and phone calls kicked in .. .. which made my creation of the day rather late in being put together.

As some of you will know .. Wednesday is the day I use up some of that mountain of white card I keep adding to .. .. and today is the day I was super brave and attempted a white on white card.  

I feel I have spent longer trying to get decent pictures than I did making it!

Certainly another one won't be making an appearance in a hurry that's for sure.

So here we go .. .. .. . 

This used:

Sentiment ribbon:  Pink Petticoat (sadly no longer trading)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder:  Roses
Nestabilities:  Rectangles and Scalloped Rectangles
Stampin' Up!: Bird Builder Punch with Branch
X-Cut:  Flower Punch
My Trusty Sewing Machine (that has been treated to a new needle)!!
Ribbon, flower and pearls from my crafty stash box

Sorry, but the pictures are still pretty rubbish .. .. but certainly the coloured background helped a little.

So I finally got my car back today .. .. the garage ran out of time for me to have it yesterday (I know that feeling well) .. .. but it got through its MOT with the help of a little welding and had a good service, so hopefully it will be happy for another year now

OK ... so that is me for today.  

Off to prepare some work for tomorrow now .. .. I need to hit the ground running in the morning!!!

Enjoy your evening.

Love Jules xx

Love your white on white card, can't see what you think is wrong with it Jules. Perhaps it's just the lack of colour that doesn't suit you personally.
i think it's very classy...but I do like white on white.xx

I love your white on white card Jules, it's something I have never made successfully. The rose embossing is lovely and the little birds are so cute, a beautiful anniversary card.
